Meeting Europe’s building renovation challenge

20 03 2019
 EIT House, 7 Rue Guimard, 1040 Brussels   20/03 - 20/03/2019

Join us to explore the pathway to decarbonisation of Europe's building stock.

Following the adoption of the Clean Energy Package setting long-term targets for 2030, year 2019 will be a critical year for Member States to decide which policy tools can deliver results.

Long-term building renovation strategies will be key to supporting the decarbonisation of the EU building stock while National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) outline measures contributing to reaching these targets. What does this mean for research and innovation in the building renovation sector? Will this new framework be able to mobilise investments to drive innovation in urban retrofit, smart technologies and skills?

As the European knowledge and innovation community working towards a climate resilient society, EIT Climate-KIC supports the transformation of cities by delivering innovation projects which contribute to a net-zero economy.

Presenting and discussing real solutions

We often hear that policymakers would like to be more aware of real ‘on the ground’ examples and solutions. We would therefore like to invite you to our inaugural ‘’renovation innovation showcase’’ event to present three key solutions from our project portfolio (including Building Market Briefs, 2ndSKIN, Financing Near-zero Energy Building Renovations in Utrecht Province) addressing decarbonisation of buildings in Europe.

 

Join us to explore the key barriers and opportunities for innovation in this space, while we drive forward with the new EIT Climate-KIC mission to retrofit 1 million homes across the EU to carbon neutrality by 2023.

 

The event will take place at EIT House, 7 Rue Guimard, 1040 Brussels, on 20 March 2019 at 08:30–10:45. Click here for more information and a detailed agenda.

 

Sounds interesting? Then please register today (limited seats available).

 

We look forward to welcoming all interested policymakers, civil servants, thought leaders and change-makers to discuss the pathway to decarbonisation of Europe’s building stock.
